Anthropocence Slam Presentation

Join our panel of researchers in a lively discussion where they each use an object to communicate the Anthropocene on a human, every day scale

The human capacity to alter the biological and physical systems of the earth has provoked a proposal for a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene.

The fundamental relation between humans and the environment is the crucial problem of our time.  There is a political and cultural urgency embedded in issues such as climate change, global warming, sustainable energy, ocean acidification, coral degradation, water scarcity and pollution.
 
At this event we welcome Professor Libby Robin to introduce Queensland to the idea of the Anthropocene Slam. Libby argues for the importance of objects as material provocateurs in the quest to communicate the Anthropocene.
 
Presenters will use anything from a seashell to a water glass or an iPhone to comment on the Anthropocene, ensuring the ‘slam' is engaging, entertaining, interactive and - most importantly - thought provoking.
DATE:
Thursday, 29th October 2015

TIME:
3.00 - 4.30pm
followed by light refreshments

LOCATION:
Global Change Institute
Group Learning Space
Building 20, Room 273
St Lucia Campus

Dr Keith Armstrong, splits his time between being a Senior Research Fellow at QUT and an actively practicing freelance new media artist. His research focuses on how scientific and philosophical ecologies can influence the design and conception of networked, interactive media artworks. His latest show, Uncanny_Intimacy opened at the Object Gallery, Australian Design Centre in August 2015.


Dr Jodi Frawley is a DECRA research fellow in the Creative Industries Faculty at QUT. She is working on a history of estuaries and fishing communities along the east coast of Australia. In 2014, along with Professor Iain McCalman, she co-edited Rethinking Invasion Ecologies from the Environmental Humanities (Routledge).

Professor Joan Leach convenes the science communication program at The University of Queensland. Her recent ARC-funded research with Dr Maureen Burns is on popular science since the 1960s. Her research centres on public engagement with science, medicine and technology and she has been active in the Australian government's recent initiatives toward “Inspiring Australia.”

Professor Geoffrey Lawrence is Emeritus Professor of Sociology and Chair of the College of Experts at the Global Change Institute, The University of Queensland. He is considered to be one of the world leaders in social science-based agri-food research. Geoffrey has been a government appointee on the Lake Eyre Basin Scientific Advisory Panel and is currently President of the International Rural Sociology Association.

Dr Dolly MacKinnon is a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at The University of Queensland, and an Associate Investigator with the ARC Centre for Excellence for the History of Emotions (The University of Queensland/The University of Western Australia).

LTNS at VU's Centre of Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing

Our next LTNS event is at Victoria University’s Centre of Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing - celebrating the completion of their new Social Technologies Lab at the Footscray Nicholson campus on Friday, 27 September, 2013.

The Social Technologies Lab is an innovative new facility with a large custom-built visualisation screen designed to view, generate and analyse social research data in new ways.

There will be two sets of activities on this day – you can choose to take part in either, or both.

1. The Launch

The launch itself will take place at 4.00pm at the Social Technology Lab (Telford Building, Room T109). Dean of the VU College of Arts, Associate Professor Bronwyn Cran, will launch the Social Technology Lab. CCDW acting director, Professor Michele Grossman, will host the launch. Refreshments provided.

2. Walk and workshop

Beginning at 10.00am on the launch day, we will host a unique technology-powered workshop and walk led by media artist Dr Keith Armstrong from Queensland University of Technology, as part of the NBN-funded Long Time No See project (http://community.long-time-no-see.org/).

After an initial orientation workshop, participants will take an walk through Footscray guided by a smartphone “app”, taking photographs as they go. The walk aims to explore pathways into “emergent ways of existing in this world through poetic actions and relationships that animate a sense of care.” Each walker’s journey will be mapped onto an online map that the group will examine afterwards. Examples of these map will be showcased at the 4.00pm launch.

Places for the walk and workshop are limited to 15, and will be allocated in order of RSVPs. Note that you must have a smartphone (Android or iPhone) to take part, and the ability to download the app. Help to source and download the app will be available on the day.

Please send your RSVP to Polly Probert (polly.probert@vu.edu.au) by….(date), stating if you would like to attend the launch only, the walk/workshop only, or both.

(The rapid prototyped robotic tracking systems designed built by Mike Candy will this time remain invisible) - as the piece very much hovers on the very edge of pure darkness. Lawrence English, Michael Candy, Luke Lickfold and I hope you enjoy it - see it in the Vicki Sowry curated Anat Australia show synapse a Selection on the 3rd floor of the Sydney Powerhouse.

Funding Success!

Funding Success: Today I was awarded an ANAT Synapse Art Science Residency with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy!  The press release stated: The Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) is pleased to announce the successful recipients of the 2012 Synapse Residency program – a core element of the Synapse initiative of the Australia Council of the Arts and ANAT, which has enabled collaboration between artists and scientists since 2004. The Synapse initiative supports creative partnerships between scientists and artists through the residency program, a database of international art/science collaborations, an archived discussion list and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage program, which supports longer-term partnerships between artists and scientists in academic research settings. ANAT, in continuing its commitment to artistic innovation, is thrilled to announce that the following Australian artists have been awarded Synapse residencies for 2012:

Keith Armstrong (QLD) + Australian Wildlife Conservancy (VIC, SA, NSW)
Australia has the highest mammal extinction rate in the world – not something to be proud of. To halt this decline, the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) acquires high ecological-value land, establishes sanctuaries and actively manages the land through feral animal control, weed eradication, fire management and the translocation of threatened species. This approach – practical land management informed by strong science – has at its heart an interdisciplinary focus that sits happily with one of Australia’s most established and successful artists, Keith Armstrong. Through a career spanning two decades, as well as his work as Senior Research Fellow at the Queensland University of Technology, Armstrong has focused on art-science and ecology-based collaborations with scientists, musicians, dancers, critical theorists and performers. With the AWC’s South-West Region Chief Scientist, Matt Hayward, he will explore ways of shifting cultural thinking to generate broad-based actions to reverse the decline of Australian habitat health and diversity.

Finitude (Mallee:time) Launches This Weekend!

Dear Friends and Supporters

I am pleased to announce the first showing of my new interactive installation FINITUDE (Mallee:Time) [v01].

WHERE:
  Room 22, The Ka-Rama Motel, Deakin Ave, Mildura, Australia for Palimpsest #08.

WHEN: 10-11TH SEPTEMBER, 10AM-5PM
Created in close collaboration with senior sound artist/composer Roger Dean (austraLYSIS), artist/designer Stuart Lawson (ex Intimate Transactions/Knowmore House of Commons) and 3D programmer Darren Pack (ex.Knowmore House of Commons).

“Time is change, time is finitude. Humans are a finite species. Every decision we make today brings that end closer, or alternatively pushes it further away. Nothing can be neutral”. Fry, T 2010

SHORT STATEMENT:  Finitude (Mallee: Time) v01 is a major new media art/sculptural/sound hybrid to be premiered at the Mildura Palimpsest. Acknowledging that we as a species are finite, the work re-positions ‘time left’ as a plastic medium that we can each choose to ‘give to’ or ‘take away’ from.  Resting on a motel room bed with a semi-transparent touch screen above them, participants influence 3D imagery, the movement of dioramas glimpsed through the screen and an immersive soundscape.
